In the middle of the electromagnetic spectrum between the binary extremes of black and white it’s not gray, as you might expect, but green. And within green’s bandwidth there are more tonal variations than any other color can make. Maybe this is why—envy, naivete, and money aside—green is generally synonymous with good. Green is paradise for Islam, luck for the Irish, and a healthy planet for environmentalists. Whereas the industrial past was gray, the future is green. LA+ GREEN has an exceptional author line-up exploring the green spectrum from plants to politics and from art to science.
